People come to the US looking for job opportunities and a high standard of living. On an average, 1,032,400 people immigrate to the US every year. There are no major changes in the US immigration policy for newcomers right now except for the ban imposed on certain countries because of the terrorist activities prevalent there. However, the RAISE Act Bill, which the Trump administration has introduced just recently, can bring about major changes in the immigration policy if passed by the Senate.
